Winter Fuel Grants

The Local Authority & partners are supporting families who are struggling financially with a grant which will help cover additional fuel costs incurred to heat the home when children would usually be in school. Recipients will live in a household where at least one of the following applies:

    • Household income, of those responsible for bills, has fallen due to a reduction in wages, either because of a reduction in working hours, a loss of regular overtime or a member of the household has been furloughed.
    • The family is a low-income household (defined as being in receipt of UC, tax credits or other income related DWP / local authority benefit) and fuel costs have increased as a result of children being at home because of school closures.
    • The family live in a household where the child would be entitled to free school meals and fuel costs have increased because the children have had to stay at home because of school closures.

The maximum grant value for families will be £80.00.  This can be split between gas and electricity payments or bills.  This is a one-off payment to households. Only one application is permitted, per household, between the scheme’s launch in January 2021 and its closure on 31 March 2021.

If you would like to apply please download and complete the attached form and send it back to: hpd@uak.email

Please note: referrals must be made by schools or agencies not individuals. Please email this back to UAK and do not submit it to the LA yourself otherwise your application will be rejected.

This grant is controlled by the Local Authority & partners – as an academy we can only submit your application; we cannot influence the outcome or assist with any questions or complaints regarding this fund
